Viewed as ‘moderate’ from only one direction

Catholic World News - September 10, 2012

Media critic Terry Mattingly observes that a Washington Post profile of outgoing USCCB staffer John Carr portrayed him as a political “moderate,” and proceeded to prove the point with quotations from several Catholics—all of them distinctly to the left of political center. If Carr really is a centrist, Mattingly reasons, there should be conservatives as well as liberals ready to testify to that alignment. The Post evidently did not feel the need to balance its perspective by contacting conservative observers.
